After staying at small but nice rooms throughout our vacation we were pleasantly surprised by the luxurious,modern and spacious room at the Pembroke. Free parking in back of the hotel. Excellent breakfast buffet. Convenient location to all the sights of Kilkenny. Friendly helpful staff.

We spent one night at this lovely hotel during our 2wk trip of Ireland. It was one of the best! Clean, spacious, new and wonderfully located. Parking is a little tight, but fine. Highly recommended for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was good too.

Space planning is perfect here: Instead of a giant closet, there's just enough hanging space for a 2-day visit. Lighting is just right in the bathroom, unlike our other hotels. Room is a good size. We were on the street, and had no traffic noise either morning. Location is perfect. The design is smart; even the stairs are handsome, and... More

The Pembroke was absolutely delightful. The staff was amazing and helpful, and our room was perfect. The room was much bigger than a typical European hotel room. We had a lovely view of the castle and everything was within easy walking distance. I will definitely stay there again!
